After “public outcry”, bluesy UK travelers Gomez add an Adelaide and two West Australian dates.

The band are regular visitors Down Under, and their forthcoming October tour is one of their most wide-ranging yet, with trips to Darwin, Cairns and Townsville. But the West and South Australian fans have kicked up enough of a stink that Gomez have been forced to add dates.

They’ll now visit Perth’s Rosemount and Fremantle’s Fly By Night, as well as hit the Gov in Adelaide.

Note, their first Melbourne Corner Hotel date has sold out and they confess that this might be the last tour for quite some time, so Gomez fans, come out of the woodwork.

Support comes from Eagle & The Worm and, in WA, Cam Avery. West Aussie tickets are available from Heatseeker, 78’s, Mills, Planet and Star. Tickets for Adelaide are from the venue.

Check out our chat with Ian and Ben from the band below the tourdates.
